A Day In the Life

Getting used to a day with two little ones is a big change. It is much more physically draining than one, but much less emotionally draining. The first time around every single decision felt like life or death. Now it is more like, “Are both girls still alive?…Yes?…GREAT!” Each day looks a lot like this…

No shower, dinner left cold on the table, both girls crying and mama not far behind.

Every morning I have plans for what I am going to accomplish after bedtime, but by the time bedtime rolls around you can bet I am doing nothing but watching TV and going to bed. Right now, that is ok. I enjoy my mornings with my girls and tv with my hubby. Everything else can wait.
